The Fall

If it's all an illusion

Then why can't I shake off this weight?

Shortsighted is vision

Is my heart in the right place

Or is this another selfish act?

 

Tell me why

When I reach for the sky

Sunlight burns out my eyes

And the dive

From this candle wax high

Swiftly brings my demise

When I reach for the sky

 

I'm on broken wings

The sunlight blinding me

I'm on broken wings

I fall straight to sea

I'm on broken wings

The thoughts provoking me

Why can't I just believe

This is killing me?

 

They say hope is all I need

As I gasp for air

What is hope?

Stochastic certainty

The numbers shuffle

Then they bury me

 

Tell me why

When I reach for the sky

Sunlight burns out my eyes

And the dive

From this candle wax high

Swiftly brings my demise

when I reach for the sky

 

It's all an illusion

I've made my conclusion

Shortsighted is vision

Can't make a decision

But can I pull my life from the ruins?

 

Call me exhibit A

I am the proof of a broke world
